Theatre Entertainment Meets Social Experiment with WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT
As part of the UtahPresents 2017-18 Season, eight local readers will perform Nasim Soleimanpour's WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT, described as "theater entertainment meets social experiment" at Kingsbury Hall, running from November 4 to December 2. Tickets are $20 for the general public, with a $5 ticket for U of U students and a $10 ticket for all other students, and are available at utahpresents.org or by calling 801-581-7100.
WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT has been called a play. But it's a lively, global sensation that no-one is allowed to talk about. Its award-winning playwright, Nassim Soleimanpour, is Iranian. His words have escaped censorship and are awaiting an audience. Each evening, the script will be read by a different performer, who has only received it one hour prior to showtime.
For the performances at Kingsbury Hall, the list of readers is:
November 4 - Bill Allred, x96 Radio From Hell
November 9 - Mckayli Abbe, U of U student (Psychology major)
November 10 - Sylvia Torti, Dean, Honors College
November 11 - Jorge Rojas, Artist, Dir. of Education & Engagement, Utah Museum of Fine Arts
November 16 - Mark Macey, U of U student (Theatre Studies major)
November 17 - Deena Marie Manzanares, Actress
